São Paulo should have the presence of goalkeeper Jandrei in this Thursday’s match, against América-MG, valid for the quarterfinals of the Copa do Brasil. The ball rolls at Independência stadium, in Belo Horizonte, starting at 9 pm (Brasilia time).
Recovered from a back trauma, the goalkeeper worked normally this Wednesday, at Barra Funda CT, and traveled with the squad to Belo Horizonte. The presence will be defined this Thursday, but there is optimism for the presence of Jandrei as a starter.
In addition to Jandrei, right-back Rafinha also worked normally and made himself available to play against América-MG. The experienced 36-year-old winger was treated for a small strain in the posterior region of the right thigh.
São Paulo won the first leg against América-MG by 1-0, in Morumbi, and depends on just one draw away from home to advance to the semifinals of the Copa do Brasil.
